One more week until the BIG day … Valentines Day that is. Do you love it? Hate it? Somewhere in between? I can’t say I’m a crazy, sappy fan, but I think any day devoted to celebrating love is a good thing 🙂 And despite being unattached for more Valentines Days than I’ve been attached, I’ve created my fair share of love inspired content. So I thought I would round up some of my favourite Valentines Inspiration from years gone by. (Please forgive some of the photography of my early blogging days – we call started somewhere!)
Looking for the perfect, from the kitchen treat for your Valentine? Look no further, these Valentine’s Linzer Cookies are just the ticket. Easy to make and delicious, your Valentine is sure to be impressed.
Linzer cookies are a play on the Linzertorte, an Austrian treat believed to have originated in the 1700s. The torte traditionally consists of a crust made of ground almonds and filled with black currant jam. Linzer cookies take two almond flavoured butter cookies and sandwich them together with a layer of jam. While any jam will do, I choose raspberry, since it is the season of love 😉 Truth be told, I actually made raspberry jam with the intention of using it in these cookies. But what I didn’t consider were the seeds! Not the most palatable, so store bought seedless raspberry jam is what I ended up using.
